Our regular visitors and guest retreatants will have noticed on their way to New Clairvaux that several blocks of trees have been removed entirely out of several prune orchards. These trees have long been producing fruit-crop for our summer harvest. Some have been harvested for nearly 30 years! So, tree extractors have worked to uproot these trees in order to make way for new plantings.
On this blog you will periodically find articles, links to pertinent websites, reflections, homilies, and images that express our monastic Cistercian life.
